homeschooled children of color. My 10yo and 6yo daughters use this text for history, reading, and literature studies. We love to do internet searches for more information and images about the lives of the books' contributors. We spent a whole afternoon looking at vintage images related to the selection we were reading at the time. Thanks, in part, to this book, my daughters know our history is more than just MLK, George Washington Carver, and "Black History Month."
